Q is for Queen of the Quarantine

My chihuahua-terrier Rain reigns over my house. Princess from the day I brought her home, prancing as if on parade with delicate feet and ballerina legs. These days she has ascended to the throne, and by throne, I mean, wherever she damn well pleases. Our king-sized bed. The top of our couch cushions. Kody and I, loyal subjects, cater to her whims. We adore her.

Thirteen years later, Rain’s once-black face and throat have become a sophisticated white, she takes advantage of her beauty rest, and she still loves unconditionally. And Martha? Well, I owe her for the arm-twisting, she has been a dog-sitter for me, and we’re overdue for another girls’ trip.    

A to Z Challenge

Ummm, so I realize that I could’ve categorized this post under R for Rain during this A-Z blogging challenge, but I needed a Q. Ummm, now I need an R post. 😊 And this is why it’s called a challenge and why I’m happy for another day. If you liked reading about Rain, perhaps you would enjoy my other posts. It’s all about gratitude this April, and I’m thankful for Rain and Martha and Mona and much:

A is for Apple and B is for Boozer and C is for Champagne and Chanel No. 5 and D is for Dad and E is for Epiphany and F is for Faith + Gratitude = Peace + Hope and G is for Great _______ and H is for Hatbox and Honeysuckle and I for an I and J is for Jesus and K is for Kody and L is for the Lovely Lauren and M is for the Marvelous Misti and a Dirty Martini and N is for the Numbers and O is for the Oversized Owl and P—Prayer and My Grandmother’s Pearls

  1. A fun and heartwarming story to wake up to this morning. What a stroke of luck for you and Rain to be brought together that day! Just what I needed. Thanks Crystal!


  2. This was a great story, just what I needed today, a feel good message during these rather dark times. I’m excited to “read” about your R post. I just ordered the book Freedom is Blogging in your Underwear! What are you reading? C


    1. Thanks, Cheryl! I’m trying to finish Untamed by Glennon Doyle. Maybe since I finished my R post I will do that before I get to U. I still have S and T to think about first.


  3. Oh, my goodness gracious alive! You plopped that little doggie right into the lap of luxury! No wonder she’s Queen of your household. Here, His Royal Highness puts on his own majestic manners, ruling our house as Bonnie Prince Charlie. The long-eared, four-legged spaniel, that is.
